“What’s up?” He responded.
“I was going to hop around to the hospital, maybe read him a book. I dunno. You interested in coming?”
“Yeah, sure. I’ll see you there.” They hung up the phone and left their spots. They eventually met up at the hospital and went to the elevator. It opened up after a bit and only one person left it. They clicked the button, and watched as the doors closed. The elevator then lifted up, on its journey to the top.
“How have you been?” Maxxie asked.
“Better, initial shock has gone away. Yourself?”
“Good,” he paused,” good.”
“So, I was reading about his status at the moment.”
“You were reading, Matt?”
“Yes…” He said through bared teeth. “And apparently, when you read to people with such statuses, they heal quicker. So… Yeah.”
“Ah, cool. Did they release when he should be healed yet?
“Four months, but if he’s not better by then…”
“They’re going to ask to pull the plug. He’s almost ninety-percent brain dead. They said he has a chance to recover, but once the four-month mark passes without signs of recovery… His fate is very grim.”
“Oh, wow.” Max said, trying to stay calm. “Well, let’s read away.” The elevator opened up and they both got out. They went to the visitors center and to the sign-in sheet and noticed something peculiar.
“Dylan Dark? Who the fuck is Dylan Dark?” Matt asked.
“Uh, dirty blonde, blue eyes, about six foot, very American looking.” The nurse said.
“And he went to see Chase?”
“Yes, you don’t know him?”
“Never heard of him.” Matt said.
“Well, I guess he knows him. He’s on the certified visitor’s list.”
“Hmm, okay thank you.” Matt left then with Maxxie down the hall, and into Chase’s room.
“You think that was the guy who went out of the elevators downstairs?” Maxxie asked.
“Dunno, but whatever. If he’s on the list, that’s fine… So Chase. Buddy…What books would you like to read today? “Last Night in Twisted River” or “Southern Lights”?” Silence. “Ah, I like that one too. Last Night in Twisted River it is.” Matt took the first shift, they switched off every other chapter. Halfway through the book, they took a break and both left. It had been at least six hours, and they were hungry for food. They both started calling people and all met at El Satisto, a Mexican food and bar.
“How was your day Matt?” Taylor asked.
“Good, I guess.” He answered.
“What did you do?” Fi asked.
“Max and I read Chase a book.” Matt answered.
“What book Max?” Oliver asked.
“Uh, Last Night in Twisted River, I think.”
“Yup.” Matt added.
“You two have been spending a lot of time down there together.” Kale put in.
“Yeah. Trying to support him. Times running out, man. Only 4 months left.” Matt said.
“I was thinking we’d all go down there soon and bring a recorder. Record our voices, so when he recovers, he knows we were there for him.” Taylor said.
“I’ll go.” Matt said.
“Me too.” Maxxie said.
“We’ll all go…” Fi growled.
“Good. Anyone heard from Kirra lately?” No one answered. “Oh…” She paused. “God, you guys are a fun bunch.”
“Well what do you want us to talk about Taylor?” Fi said. “We all have our minds preoccupied with other things. It’s hard to focus.”
“So… Today when we went to the hospital someone named Dylan Dark had visited Chase’s room. Any of you know him?” Matt said, sounding very strange. Again, no one answered.
“Dylan Dark. Hmm, I think that was one of Chase’s old friends from prepatory school. Then they went to different schools after middle school, but I don’t know. I haven’t heard that name since the beginning of 9th grade.” Taylor said after a while.
“Oh, well okay… Interesting…
During the 2nd Month of Chase’s Absence:
Chase- Nearing the end of the 2nd month, his brain had slightly recovered to twenty-percent functionality. His accident, as severe as it was, didn’t puncture his brain enough and left it the ability to recover.
Taylor- She still is in shock of the accident, but has gone through some ‘self-alleviating stress’ therapy to help her move on. She has accepted the chance of him coming out of his state to be very small, and to not worry her self over his chance of living. After all, how far can love extend itself?
Kirra- About time to start posting missing child signs.
Matt- He feels deep down inside, Chase will come back, or at least that’s all he can tell himself. In his case, how far can friends bend to help one another?
Fi- She wasn’t affected directly, but was indirectly. Chase was their interesting fellow to drive their lives. He had all the parties to go to, he did all the stuff that made life interesting. She did want him to come back, but couldn’t admit it.
Kale- He now knew he did miss Chase. Even with all the things he had going on Chase drove him in many situations. As weird as Chase was, Kale wanted him back.
Oliver- He had regained his original life back, minus Chase. He was happy with all that was going on, but Chase was the missing link to the Eden of his own happiness.
Maxxie- He had the same views as Matt. Although Chase had done what he had done, Max figured you just have to live and let go of the past. He moved on, and now he did want Chase to be back.
Olivia- She never visited Chase once. It still killed her to do it. She had such a love hate relationship with him, it just was to hard for her to deal. Her parents put her in extensive counseling, but she knew she had to admit to herself whether to move on, or keep in touch with the absent Chase.
(When I wrote this, I felt a difference in my writing from the previous chapters/anecdotes. What do you guys think?)
Thursday, November 26, 2009
(Explanation of now: Now, they’re going to be short 2-5 page posts one what each persons going through. If they’re life is in ruins etc.)
Taylor immediately cancelled the message and dialed the police. At first she got a busy noise and hung up. She called again and got the same thing. “Useless fuckers! Why do we have them if they’re busy!” She tried one more time and was finally put through.
“911, what’s your emergency?”
“Hi? Hello? Oh my god, help us! I’m so worried please come help, now we need your help…”
“I’m sorry ma’am, but your going to have to calm down and take it slow.” It was a mans voice.
“Yes… Okay my names Taylor, I’m at Richter’s Point by the canyon. My boyfriend has just fallen down it, we need your help right now!”
“Okay ma’am I’m transmitting the call right now, they’re on their way. Would you like me to stay on the line?”
“No, just get them the fuck over here! Quick! He’ll be dead by then if you don’t hurry!” She hung the phone up and looked over to Matt, tears streaming down her face. “You fucker! Look at what you fucking did! You did this! It’s your entire fault! You pushed him into the fucking canyon!” She said through her tears,
“I---I---I’m s---Sorry. I didn’t mean to.” He said as his own tears came down. At that moment Olivia showed up to tell them the fire department had arrived.
“What’s going on?”
“Matt pushed your brother into the canyon!”
“Olivia… I didn’t mean to! I’m sorry!”
“It’s a bit late for sorry Matt!” Olivia screamed. “HELP! HELP!” She screamed again at the top of her lungs. Within moments the men arrived and she told them as tears came down her face. They went over and looked down to see him. They got out their equipment and started to scale down the sides. After a while they finally got to the bottom. They quickly ran to the body and saw the boy lying there. The medic checked his pulse and couldn’t find it. He quickly strapped the body and the men started to climb the canyon to the top. They reached it and ran off with the body. The sirens were heard moments later an in a blink of the eye were gone.
Taylor rushed everyone into the car and followed the sirens. She followed them for what seemed like an eternity until she finally reached her destination. She ran out of the car without parking it and ran up to the ambulance, banging on the windows. The security guards in front of the intensive care building rushed over and grabbed her, but it was clear she wasn’t going to go down without a fight. Eventually after many flying elbows, they pulled her off and out of the way…
During the 1st month of Chase’s absence.
Chase- Identified with a crushed patella, tibia, fibula, femur, radius, ulna, and broken ribs. His spine for whatever reason was not harmed, but he suffered huge head trauma.
Taylor- She went into a new stage of her life. It was clear all that she had said prior to his occurrence was all a lie. She was still madly in love with Chase, and there was no understanding her.
Kirra- She was erased from the grid. No one had heard a word from her since she left. Not Matt, not anybody. As far as anyone was concerned, she was deader than Chase.
Matt- He seemed like a lost puppy. Nobody to follow, nobody to love, nobody to be with. Crying at night couldn’t even explain the position he was in.
Fi- As much as she wanted to believe, she wasn’t really affected by this. He had brought more stress on her during her years than happiness.
Kale- He was unsure at this stage. He wasn’t the best of friends with Chase. They were friends indeed, but it seemed all right. What can go wrong with a couple of pills, Viagra, and a few raves?
Oliver- Not much to say. Once a prick, always a prick.
Maxxie- Followed Matt around a lot when he would go to the hospital. He’s changed a lot in many ways. He has now figured out what’s wrong in life, and is determined to find happiness.
Olivia- Her brother was everything to her. He was now gone. She couldn’t bring herself to go visit him; it was just too painful. Everyday she would march into his room and dig a new object out of it, hoping to defeat the pain and anger within.
Each ‘anecdote’ will feature two characters and one every so often. It will also include at the bottom a little note about what’s going on with them during this month. After this section is finished, I’ll go back to chapters.

“Taylor!” Chase yelled across the canyon. “Taylor!” She turned around and saw him standing there with a sideways look on his head.
“Still stalking me?”
“Sure, cause I always stalk you.”
“Just stop. I don’t want a fight, leave now or stop.”
“What do you want from me? It’s been months.”
“You know what I want. I want you to feel what I felt. Like you’re willing to die, like nothing else matters. I want you to love me…”
“You know I do, its unquestionable.”
“Taylor, I love you.” He sounded put out.
“I don’t want that! I want it to be true, not something you’ve been forced to say.” Matt peeked behind a tree behind Taylor and saw what was going on.
“I can’t fucking say it anymore! That’s the best I’ve got.” Matt looked both ways down the canyon and in the distance he saw a bridge. He slowly made his way down the forest and eventually made it to bridge. He crossed it and made his way back to the two. By the time he got back they were both yelling obscenities, one after the other.
Matt got behind the tree and watched it once again, thinking over the plans he had worked out. “Well fuck you if you don’t understand. I’m not fucking gay, you were waiting for me to tell you something that wasn’t there!” Chase said.
“People don’t just go around blowing some of their best friends! Chase it’s not even that! It’s the fact you lied! You deceived us! You undermine us! You treat us like shit, and you expect us to understand! Well we don’t!”
“I’m sorry! Okay? I’m sorry!”
“No you’re not. If you were even remotely sorrowful then you wouldn’t have waited this long… Times up Chase.”
“Chase, that’s enough! Leave. It’s over.” Matt said stepping in. He startled Chase and Chase backed up.
“No. Matty, Matt, Matthew, I won’t.”
“Don’t make you what? You gonna punch me?” Taylor sat on the sidelines, half confused on what was going on.
“No. Just leave! Now!”
“I’m not.” Chase heaved himself towards Matt, knocking him to the ground, and continuing to pummel him. Matt had scraped up his knees, legs, hands, elbows and face, blood was coming out profusely. He got up and stared at Chase, tears streaming. He clinched his fists and charged full might at Chase, knocking him in the gut. It send him flying backwards. He got to the edge of the canyon and was trying to get his balance, but lost it. His foot left its mark and sent him flying down. Richter’s Point, the canyon which marks its territory, had claimed Chase.
“CHASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Taylor screamed as loud as she possible could. She ran towards the edge and looked down. Matt stood there perfectly still, shocked at what happened. He fell to his knees, the pain was nonexistent.
Taylor watched the only person she loved, her best friend, her everything, no matter what had happened to them, reach the bottom, hitting the rocks. There was no telling what this meant for him, death was certainly the most obvious answer…
Taylor watched the bottom for minutes before doing anything. That was when her phone vibrated. She got it out and looked at it, one new message. It stated one word: Surprise…
(So there you go. If you guys would like I’ll continue. =))
Saturday, September 26, 2009
I’ve finally realized it. You have you’re life and I have mine. Some lives should never intertwine and these are some of them. So, this is how it’s going to go. I’m not going with you on the camping trip. I’m leaving now. Nothing is stopping me, and the world is wide open for me. I love you Matt and I always will. But I’m not going to be waiting for you forever so it’s time to stop playing this wicked game. I’ll always remember you.
She folded it and put it in an envelope with the rest of the papers. She left Taylor’s house and headed down the block. She reached his house quickly and knocked on the door. She quickly set it on the floor mat and ran away. She watched to make sure someone would get the note and when they did she kept walking. When she got back to the house she went upstairs and packed up her stuff, only to be interrupted.
“Kirra?” Taylor asked.
“What you doin?”
“To start afresh.”
“Where you going?”
“I don’t know. I was thinking Ireland or maybe Canada.”
“Why would you want to leave?”
“Sick of this.”
“So you’re just going to run?”
“You can’t run from everything, it all catches up with you.”
“I can try.” Kirra put in her last possession and stood up.
“So where do we go from here?”
“Nowhere.” Kirra picked up her bag and left the room leaving Taylor in awe and she walked down the steps. She opened up the door and looked back at Taylor. She knew she was shattering her friendship, but went out the door and shut it behind her. She continued down the street, making her way out.
Kale waited in the same spot from earlier in the park. He was waiting for Fi to come and the wait was horrible. It seemed to take hours before she showed up.
“Not much, I guess. You?”
“Just talking to you…”
“You going tomorrow?”
“Yeah, you?” Fi said, getting kind of bored.
“Heard anything from you mum lately?”
“Of course not. She’s gone Fi, not coming back.” Kale said snootily.
“You still with Angie?”
“I was never with Angie, we were occasionally hooking up.” He again said snootily.
“Jeez, I didn’t mean to set you off, calm down.”
“Sorry, I didn’t mean…”
“It’s fine Kale.” Fi said getting ready to just leave. “Any ways, what do you want?”
“Just to talk? Is there something wrong with that?”
“What do you want to do?”
“Can’t we just sit here, for a while, and talk?”
Chase had shoveled out the news that they were going camping tomorrow and was excited to go and crash it. He couldn’t decide whether which idea in his head was better than the other.
“Taylor?” He said when he got a call.
“Matt told me he told you…”
“Yeah, he did.”
“We didn’t invite you because… Well, you can come if you want.”
“Don’t worry yourself, I’m not. I wouldn’t want to trash your wonderful little evening. “
“No, it’s not that we didn’t want you because we knew you’d…” Chase cut her off.
“I won’t. Just leave it alone.” An awkward moment of silence went on for about thirty seconds until one talked.
“Exactly. I’ll tell you why you didn’t just hang up. Because you know I’m the only one who you can talk to and be understood by.” Chase smirked and thought she was insane for a moment.
“Yeah. Exactly right. Your absolutely correct.” Chase rolled his eyes. “Well, is there anything else you want?”
“Yes, but I’m not getting it no matter what.” She hung up the phone and threw it against the wall, but luckily it didn’t break. Chase laughed and put his phone on his desk.
Maxxie walked up to Oliver’s house and stood in front of it, he braced himself and knocked on the door. In a few seconds Oliver’s dad answered the door and greeted Maxxie warmly. Oliver soon came down the steps, and saw Max.
“Where’ve you been these past months?” His dad said.
“Why haven’t you been with Oliver lately?”
“We were in a fight.” Oliver said.
“A fight? Why would you want to fight with your friends?”
“I’m gay Mr. Manula.” Maxxie said.
“You should never fight with your friend Oliver it’s not good you know.”
“Dad, listen to Maxxie. He’s gay.” Oliver said.
“So?” His dad said.
“Well, I thought you’d… Be mad?” Oliver asked.
“Why? Is he your best friend?”
“Listen, you don’t get many friends in your life who will keep coming back no matter what happens. Keep them close.”
“Well yeah, but with the whole… You know.”
“We have different lives. It’s not our job to judge each other, it’s His.” His dad said motioning up. “So, if this is Maxxie’s choice then so be it. But don’t be a fool and give up a friend like him.”
“You found it.” Maxxie said. He said goodbye to Oliver’s dad and left the home.
“Fi, I got to tell you something.” Kale said.
“I think…” Kale started.
“I love you.” Fi finished.
“Yeah, that.” Fi reached over and grabbed Kale’s head and kissed him
Matt walked into his home and into the kitchen where he saw his dad cooking something. It smelled horrible, but what didn’t with his dad’s cooking.
“You got a letter, it’s on the table.”
“I don’t know, go open it.” Matt got the note and took it upstairs to his room. He opened it up and took out the many papers. He read the note first and by the end a tear was rolling down his face, only one. He quickly scanned through the other pages to find many different things. Some said how much they loved him, hated him, longed for him, and needed him. It took him a good while to put it all together and when he realized it he quickly put on shoes and ran out the door. He ran and ran until he came to the train station. He went up to the salesman before anything else.
“Hi, I need to ask you something and I need you to give me a straight answer.” Matt said, exhausted from his run.
“Okay?” The salesman said confused.
“Did you see a girl come by here with blonde hair, kind of ditsy, dresses funny and weird?”
“I see lots of people like that, you’re going to have to describe her more.”
“Never mind.” Matt rolled his eyes and walked off he went down to the loading dock and saw a train closing its doors. He walked up to it quicker and watched it start to move. It made its slow set off and Matt stared through each window. Near the end he saw her face. Kirra was staring out the window, which she had opened. She saw Matt and watched him as the train drove off and away, into the sunset of the day.
(Sorry this took so long I’ve been really busy this week.)
Saturday, September 19, 2009
“Did you ever notice, when you get high enough it starts to rain?” Kale asked.
“Rain?” Maxxie asked.
“What kind of rain Kale?”
“You know, the kind that falls when you find out your true friends.”
“What are you going on about, I can’t follow you.”
“List the people that would be there for you. When the rain starts to fall.”
“Everyone, I suppose.”
Maxxie paused. “Even… Oliver.”
“Now, who would be there first for you?”
“And who are you not talking to?”
“And who should you make up with?”
“And who are you going to go talk to right now?”
“I don’t think so Kale. I’m good right here.”
“Fine, I’ll just call him then.” Kale opened up his phone and found Oliver’s number. He pressed call and then speakerphone so they could both hear.
“Hello?” Oliver said.
“Hey Ollie boy. Come meet us.”
“City Park. Main Place bench.”
“Who you with?”
“Oh, I’m kind of busy right now.”
“No you’re fucking not. Get your ass here now.”
“Fine. I’m coming.” With that, Kale hung up the phone.
“See Maxxie boy? It’s that easy. Well, I’m gonna go. I’ll come back later. Perhaps with everyone.”
“What? You’re leaving? No you aren’t. Sit down.”
“See ya later Max.” Kale left the area and Maxxie watched him as he strode off. Out of sight, and soon out of mind with the coming of Oliver.
“Hi Max.” Oliver said, taking a seat.
“How you doin’?”
“What’s wrong then.”
“Well, I got this friend. He won’t talk to me.”
“Maybe it’s cause you’re a hypocritical ass.”
“Maybe I am. Yet, my friend won’t consider that as good quality.”
“Maybe because it isn’t good. Maybe your friend just wants you to take it back.” Maxxie said angrily.
“And how can he take it back?”
“Take a lucky guess.”
“Well, it turns out I have no luck.”
“Hide and seek.” Maxxie got up and started to walk off in a hurry.
“What?” Maxxie got into a run then. “Seek what?” Oliver yelled, but Maxxie was gone and out of sight.
Taylor sat in front of the school on the green with Fi, Olivia, and Matt. They had about thirty minutes before school was to start, and had nothing to do, but talk.
“Hello Olivia.” Taylor said.
“Okay… Hello Livi.” Taylor said again.
“How you doin’?” Fi asked.
“Why you here?” Matt asked.
“He just dropped you off?” Matt asked another question.
“No, I’m just sitting here with you because I have nothing better to do.”
“Yeah sure… So guys I was thinking we go camping this weekend. How does that sound?” Taylor asked.
“Camping?” Matt asked.
“Yeah. Richter’s Point or Hard Edge?”
“Who said we wanted to go?” Matt asked again.
“Because. Do you have anything better to do?”
“So you’re happy to come.”
“Sounds fun to me.” Fi asked.
“You’re welcome to come too Livi.”
“As long as its Richter’s and I’m not busy, sure.” Just then Kale approached the area alone.
“Hey Kale.” Matt said.
“Hey, what you guys doing?” Kale responded.
“We’re going camping this weekend. You wanna join us?” Taylor said.
“Richter’s?” Kale asked.
“What is it with you people and Richter’s?” Fi asked.
“Shrooms.” Livi and Kale said at the same time. Chase approached the group and thought about sitting down. He eventually decided he needed to and did.
“What you guys talking about?” He asked.
“Ca---“ Matt said, but was cut off by Taylor.
“How you left your sister here.”
“She has no school today, and I was busy.”
“Busy with what?” Kale asked.
“It’s a wonderful surprise.”
“Well go tend to it then.” Fi said trying to get him to leave.
“I don’t need to. It’s pretty much done.”
“So, when do we get to see this “wonderful” surprise?” Taylor said mockingly.
“Oh, just wait. It’ll be good.”
“Good in our sense or your sense?” Taylor asked.
Chase put his finger to his lips and said,” Shhhh! That would ruin the surprise! Well any ways I actually do have something to do, so I’ll see you later.” He got up and left the college itself, disappearing.
“He’s acting… Strange.” Fi said.
“He is strange. So, Richter’s I guess on Saturday.”
“Tomorrow?” Kale said.
“Who’s going to drive us?” Matt asked.
“Taylor.” Olivia said, volunteering her.
“Yeah, I guess I will.” Taylor said.
“Sounds… Nice.” Kale said. “ I’m going to go anyone want to come with?”
“Yeah, I will.” Matt said. The two got up and walked off into the school. Soon replaced by Kirra.
“Kirra, camping tomorrow with us?” Fi asked.
“Oh wow, camping?”
“That’s what she said.” Taylor sneered.
“Cool, yeah, camping. Sounds fun.”
“Good.” Fi said as another person sat down next to them.
“Camping Max?” Olivia said.
“We’re going camping tomorrow.” Kirra said.
“Why would you want to go camping?”
“Shrooms.” Olivia said.
“Oh, a little druggy on our hands.” Maxxie laughed.
“You coming?” Taylor asked.
“I guess. Who’s going.”
“Everyone?” Fi said.
“Not Chase.” Taylor added.
“Cool… Kirra you’re coming?” Maxxie asked.
“I thought you were back in your care center.”
“I can sneak out.”
“Even if Matt goes?” Maxxie asked again.
“Sure. I don’t have to talk to him.” Just then the bell rang and everyone got up. They said goodbye and scurried off to their classes.
The first few periods went by slowly for everyone; horrible subjects, horrible teachers, horrible classes. When the last period finally ended cheers were heard throughout the school as everyone left.
“What did you do this whole time?” Taylor asked Livi.
“Why didn’t you go out with your friends.”
“I don’t want any friends.”
“Go to an all girl school and you’ll see why.”
“Do you have to be so fucking condescending all the time when someone’s trying to talk to you?” Taylor asked.
“I’m not gonna be polite. So pretty much.”
“Fine, I have a question for you.”
“Do you know why your brother did what he did?” Livi shrugged. “Do you know what he did?” Livi shook her head up and down. “Hm, okay then. Thanks.” Taylor crossed her arms and left the school to go home. Chase soon showed up to pick his sister up, and they left. He drove her home and parked his car.
“Out?” Chase asked.
“What about her?”
“Fucking ass hole.”
“Okay ass hole.” She opened up her door and walked up to her house door, opening it. Chase closed it behind him when he walked in and they both went to their rooms.
Maxxie checked his phone and found twenty new messages and fifteen missed calls all from the same person. At that very moment the person called again.
“Hello?” Max asked.
“Max? Is that you?”
“Are you going camping with us tomorrow?”
“I already told you man. So there’s no point bothering with me.” Maxxie hung up his phone and turned it off to prevent any possible temptations. He packed up his stuff for the next day and couldn’t wait for the last hours to pass.
(There’s part 1. Part 2 possibly tomorrow. Here’s the explanation of parts. Part 1: Intro Part 2: It will wrap up most story lines Part 3: Camping Part 4: Wrap up the remainder of this “book.”)

Ellie- Thanks, I'll make dialogue clearer and the setting. In the next chapter it's going to be called The End, and it'll have a lot of those things. Maxxie and Oliver will have a big place, Taylor and Matt will... Well it'll be interesting. I see what your saying, but I kinda wanted it all to seem surreal so it's kind of dreamy. Also, I don't want the reader to feel sad for her, I just want them to hate her at the same time, so I'm trying to conflict hate with feelings. Hope that clears it up.
Oaks- That's how I felt from the show. A darkness to it, but comical to. Also, the whole Maxxie thing at the end is left for inference. Did he dream it? Is it all real? Did Kirra dream it? What's real? Just a bit to make you guys think. Okay about the next thing, I will. And she didn't. If you think about her character in general her whole swagger and self is all hidden. If I do write another Kirra, you'll see a different side to her perhaps. Next chapter will do all that. If you want a refresher, what part did you mean?
Cass and Cady- I'm glad it's your favorite part. I was a bit unsure, but cool now. I was thinking about that. I had three things in my head. What you said, what I wrote, and happening at the hospital. C, seemed to fake, and A and B was a hard choice. Next chapter theyre coming.
Heres a bit of what you can expect. Camping trip. Not like Michelle's birthday episode a combo of that Effy's season 3 and all new. Everyone will be there. This takes place later in the chapter. I'm going to end it very long like the 1st chapter. You can expect a lot of Oliver and Maxxie, seeing as they still have loads of issues and story holes. Chase and Taylor drama, but it won't be big. Taylor and Matt will have an interesting amout. Kale will be brought up more seeing as he's kind of died off. Fi, Kirra and Chase will just be iffy's. Then Olivia will be there, maybe to just mess it all up. Who knows.
Anyways I hope this helped if you still have questions feel free to comment. Also, if you were wondering about Chase/Olivia chapters, they aren't there. Chase was chapter one. It was originally Everyone/Chase, but I changed it. Olivia isn't a feature yet so I don't think prolonging it will help.
Thursday, September 10, 2009
Matt and Chase arrived at the front of the hospital and stared inside the ER’s front window.
“Is he going to die?”
“I don’t know. You know as much as me.”
“Fuck, it’s my entire fault. I shouldn’t have… You know what no. It isn’t my fault. It’s your fault. You sent me there.”
“Oh shut up Matt. You didn’t have to follow my orders like a little puppy, you could’ve checked your messages, and you could’ve paid him. None of this is my fault.”
“What do we do then?”
“Go inside would be a good idea….” Chase said as he pushed along.
Kirra stared blankly into her home. Thoughts of Matt poured through her mind, and she wasn’t sure what to do. Suicide didn’t work so what would. She had no clue, but a devious grin spread across her face. Maybe she did have a clue…
She opened up her front door and walked inside. She walked straight to the kitchen and saw her mom leaning against the sink. Her dad sat at the table.
“Hello mum. Hi dad.”
“Hi Kirra. Sit down.” Her mom said.
“We’re disowning you.” Her dad said.
“What? What the fuck is that? That’s stuff you see in movies, and in fiction. And of all ways to bring it up, you do it so bluntly?”
“We don’t have a choice dear.”
“And why not?”
“Your dad was fired today, and we can’t support you. It’s disownment or go to a foster home.”
“Wow, couldn’t you have at least brought this up a little less suttle?”
“We have to now, or it won’t happen. Your father has been out of a job for some time and neither of us have been able to find one, they’re coming for you tonight.”
“Thanks mom and dad. Do you have any clue what I’ve been going through?”
“We know you have those original issues.”
“Original? This is exactly what I thought. Mom I have a fucking eating disorder! Something’s wrong with me and I don’t know what.”
“You think this is easy for us? Well it’s not and you have no right to speak to us that way no matter what your problem is. We’re losing our daughter! This is not easy, so stop trying to make this all about you. It’s not.”
“Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow.” Kirra sang tunefully. “So may I see the papers or whatever it is?”
“Here.” Her dad said as he pulled out a file from next to him. “You have to sign on every space there is, and we can do the rest.”
“Fine.” Kirra signed all the spaces after a while, and handed the file back. She kicked back her chair and a tear streamed down her face as she walked up the stairs to her room. She slammed the door behind her and locked it so no intruders would enter. She took out anything she could pack stuff within and did so. Bed sheets, computers, clothes, and jewelry. Everything you could think of was packed. She opened up her bedroom window and put the items carefully on the non-accessible balcony.
A knock came at her door as she started to contort her body through the window. She ignored it and proceeded. She took her bags one by one down the escape ladder and placed them on the ground. She heard the door upstairs being forcefully opened as she left the premises of her home. She fled the neighborhood and eventually came to a stop at a bench. She opened up her cell phone and saw the new message alert. She opened it and that same message appeared from Unknown…”Eat.”
She called up Fi, but no answer. She tried Taylor, then Oliver, then Kale, Chase, and even Matt, but no answer from any of them. She knew only one place she could turn to, that was friendly. She went to Taylor’s house, and was welcomed by her mom even though she wasn’t there.
“Is it okay if I set these down here?”
“Uh, sure. May I ask what’s wrong?”
“Oh nothing.” Kirra set her stuff down and started walking out the door.
“That girl is so fucking strange…” Taylor’s mom said as she closed the door.
Kirra took a cab to the hospital where she hoped to find everyone. She paid the driver and walked into the ER to find familiar faces inside. “Hey guys.” Kirra said.
“Where the fuck have you been?” Fi asked.
“Oh I dunno. Getting disowned by my parents, running away, at Taylor’s house, in a cab and here.” She said really quickly.
“I have no clue what you just said, but I’ll take that as an excuse.”
“Yeah, of course you will. So how’s he doing.”
“No one knows. They won’t tell us anything.” Taylor said.
“Yeah, it’s like the fucking television shows where they don’t tell the people anything.” Kale said.
“Thanks for repeating what I just said Kale.” Taylor snapped.
“Hey Kirra.” Matt said.
“Oh, it’s you. Hi Matt. Hi Chase.”
“Is that all you can say? So? Have you ever heard of driving a conversation? How about, Kirra why did you get disowned? Or, sorry about our date.”
“Okay, I’m really really sorry about our date. I know you’ve given me two chances. The first I utterly fucked up, this I still kind of fucked up, but it wasn’t as bad. If you’re willing to give me another chance, I’d take it in a heartbeat.” Chase laughed.
“Kirra, why did you get disowned?” Chase asked.
“My parents are homeless and I don’t want to go to a foster home.”
“I’m sorry about that. Is there anything I can do?” Chase said, surprising everyone.
“Nothing I want. So any ways, where’s Oliver?”
“Didn’t want to come.” Fi answered.
“He didn’t want to come see whether his best friend dies. Wow, great healthy relationship there. Kind of like everyone’s friendship. It’s fun watching everyone’s life spin round and round.”
“Can you just calm down Kirra. Just try to get through the night?” Taylor asked.
“And where is his parents?”
“On their way. They were on vacation.” Fi answered.
“Oh.” Kirra took a seat and the hours wandered away. One by one everyone fell asleep waiting for a doctor, until two stayed awake. Chase and Kirra.
“So what made you decide to come?”
“You tell me.”
“I’d hope the reason is because he’s your friend.”
“Stop it Chase.”
“Why don’t you tell me.”
“Stop what Kirra.”
“Stop everything. You don’t know any boundaries.”
“I know Kirra.”
“Wow. You know?” Chase stood up and put his hands against the wall behind her head.
“Yes. I do.” He stared into her eyes deeply and leaned in. She slid underneath his arms and out of the chair. She sat down next to it.
“Wow Chase, what was your plan? Stay up, have a chat, and hope I’d blow you? Well fuck you!” She yelled, waking everyone up.
“What’s wrong Kir?” Everyone asked, slowly coming to.
“Nothing. Just decided to yell. It’s quite fun.”
“Yeah sure Kirra.” Matt said as he once again closed his eyes.
“Any news yet?” Fi asked.
“Well, I’m don’t sitting here. I’m going up there and demanding information.” Kale said as he stood up. He marched down the halls until a few doctors got in his way.
“You cant come back here sir.”
“Then give us some fucking information!”
“Max. Maxxie Oliver.”
“We can’t release anything yet. Not until his parents arrive.”
“Are you joking? Do you know anything? His parents are at least a two days trip away, so are you telling me you’re going to not release anything to us? That kid. That kid is my best friend. I know I sound lame, but tell me what’s wrong with him. What’s wrong with that kid. Is he going to die?” Kale said as his eyes watered a bit.
“I’m sorry. We can’t. Now if you can get the parents to contact us, we may be able to talk.”
“Tell me something---please.”
“All I can tell you. Well I’m not supposed to. I can tell you that he’s in surgery.” Kale stared at them for few moments and then walked back. He reached the room and told them all.
“Wow, wonderful.” Kirra said. “These truly are the best of days.” She stood up and left. She walked the streets alone, with no followers visible. She reached Taylor’s house to find her mom gone, but she managed to get in. Tears streamed down her face as she stormed through the house. She couldn’t find anything to calm her down. No ‘cigs, no ‘spliffs, no pills, nothing. She couldn’t stop spazzing out as she started destroying everything in the house.
The door bell rang, and that brought her back down to Earth. “Shit!” She said as she tried to straighten everything up, figuring it was Taylor’s mom. She opened the door to see an unexpected face. Not even Matt.
“What do you want?” Chase kissed her then, and she didn’t resist. They led each other up the stairs and entered a vacant bedroom. Kirra ripped off his shirt and started to undo his belt. She took it off and Chase took her shirt off. They took turns and kept going towards the bed. Kirra pushed Chase into a dresser on ‘accident’ on the way. “Fuck.” He said.
“God, stop being such a pussy,” They reached the bed and she turned over on him and resisted letting him take control. Kirra had found the one thing to relieve her stress. Unlikely, but it was Chase.
Kirra opened up her phone. Chase was gone, the house was still empty. She found three new messages waiting to be opened. She opened the first one. It was nothing. She opened the second one and the same message for the third time was displayed. "EAT!” Then she opened up the last message and followed its directions.
She opened up the cab door and entered it. She sat on the seats quiet. No noise until she spoke. “Hello Steve.”
“What’s up kiddo.”
“They say I have to come back for a re-evaluation. They think I’ve cheated the system.”
“Of course not. Why would I do that?”
“I know you better than that.”
“Just go please.” He drove off and reached the destination. Kirra got out and went inside. She went through all the tests and went to the final examiner.
“Kirra. What is this?”
“What is what?”
“Everything marked correct is no longer that way.”
“Why is it my fault? I already passed the first one.”
“But not this one. This one is obviously more accurate.”
“How do you know?”
“Because. So, this is how it’s going to go. You will be readmitted at no charge.”
“Yes. Your parents?”
“What about them?”
“They scheduled this re-evaluation Kirra. You didn’t know?”
“No. I didn’t know a thing.”
“Yes. They also left a check for you for the next three months.”
“Yes, so your going to be staying here for the time being. So you can go out and get your stuff. We’ll be expecting you.”
“Wow. And do you know where my parents are?”
“No. They said they’d be gone for a while, but hopefully back by the time your school year ends.”
“Oh, wonderful. So is there anything else?”
“Nope, I think that should do it Kirra. Nice to have you back.”
“Nice to…Be back.” Kirra left the institution and didn’t enter her cab. She went to Sparky’s Lounge and entered it. She sat at the bar and ordered food, pancakes to be exact.
“Kid. What’s wrong.” Steve said.
“I’ve been reinstated.”
“I don’t eat.”
“And why not?”
“I don’t know. I’ve been getting messages telling me too. You haven’t been sending them have you?”
“No, I don’t tell you how to live your life. You don’t tell me.”
“Then who sends them?”
“Who wants you to eat? Just eat.”
“Okay…” She cut a bite and stuck it to her mouth, but stopped.
“So, what you been doing lately?”
“Eat.” She put it to her mouth and tasted the first bite.
Maxxie opened his eyes. He was in his bed. What a crazy night he had had. Was it all real or was it a dream?
“What the fuck?” He said.
“You okay Max?” Fi asked.
“Yeah, not bad. What you doing here?”
“Thought we could hang out today. Dunno.”
“How long have you been there?”
“Minutes. Taylor, Kale, and Oliver just left.”
“Yeah, he was here too.”
“Oh, okay. Cool.”
“He misses you, you know.”
“Yeah, and I miss him too.”
“Where’s Kirra and Chase and Matt?”
“They were here last night, but had to go.”
“Oh. You won’t believe the dream I just had.”
“Oh, why not?”
“What was it?”
“I got shot, Chase and Kirra and WHAT THE FUCK!”
“What?!” Fi screamed.
“What the fuck are those!”
Wednesday, September 2, 2009
"Now, let's see here… Kirra. Now Kirra, how do you feel?" The examiner said.
"Fantastic? Good, good. Weight, good, height, good, food intake. How much food are you eating dear?"
"Oh, almost four meals a day. It's amazing. Wow, I can't believe it myself. I didn't know life could taste so good."
"Yes, I just love it."
"Wonderful. Check, check, check, check. Any thought of suicide lately?"
"Oh god no. Suicide?"
"Yeah. Check, check, check. Okay then. You're free to go. Just know this clinic is always here for you in times of trouble or need. Or when you just need to get away from the city. Think of it as an asylum of the world."
"Yeah, cool. That's great. Thank you so much. It's just amazing how much you've helped me." Kirra got up and stared at the examiner. She thought for a while then just left the room. She walked out of the building and entered her drivers cab.
"School would be fine."
"Okay then." He drove off and got onto the roads, slowly making his way to the school.
"Got any new music Stevie?"
"Watch you looking for? I have some of this stuff you kids like called rap. Then I have some classical. Both new."
"How about classical."
"Sure." He put on the music and drove along happily just as Kirra was. He eventually got to the school and parked in front.
"Thanks so much for driving me around this whole time."
"I've been delighted to kiddo. It's been fun. As sad as I am, I'm happy to see you leaving me."
"Me too. I'll miss you so much." Kirra moved in and gave him a kiss on the cheek. "Bye Steven." She got out and walked up to the school. She went inside and to her first class: Philosophy. She entered the classroom and saw everyone sitting down, but Taylor. She took a seat and waited for the bell to ring.
"Hey." Matt said sitting down.
"So, you excited for tonight?"
"Yeah. Sounds fun. Where is it that you wanted to go?"
"Scalianos sounds nice."
"Nope. My dad works there we can eat for free."
"Oh cool. Scalianos it is." Chase walked in and took a seat right next to Matt.
"Matt. Tonight we're going out on the pull. Okay? Now that Taylor has announced the divorce terms, we can do whatever we want."
"Sorry Chase, he's going with me." Kirra said.
"Oh, where to?"
"What the fuck? You're telling me you're taking her to a fucking top end non-sexy restaurant on a first date? Don't be such a fucking pussy."
"I quite like it there actually." Matt said.
"Yeah, and he let me choose Chase, so that's where he's going."
"Whatta joke. Well, I'll join you then."
"What?" Matt asked.
"Yeah, I'll meet you there, what time."
"Okay. I'm going."
"Wow, Chase. Cool a group date. Can't wait…" Kirra lied. The bell rang and Julie came in.
"Hey Julie." The answered.
"Now, there's someone I want you to meet. As you know, I'm going to be taking an indefinite leap of absence, so this will be my reliever. Mr. Sykes, please come in." He walked in the classroom and the familiar face was shown. Matt instantly flipped out and ducked his head.
"Is that your dealer Matt?"
"My dealer? That's…"
"No, it's yours. I would never get anything from that. Look at him. Fucking pathetic."
"Yeah, but he's going to fucking kill me now. He already said he would and now he's found me. I've been luck enough to get this far."
"He's not going to fucking touch you. You're fine. If anything he'll go after your friends first."
"Oh great so now everyone can blame it on me. Thanks so much Chase."
"Matt, don't worry. You're fine. He probably doesn't even remember you." Kirra said deciding to help. "Listen Matt. He's a teacher he can't touch you here. So he'll have to stalk you home and he won't. Stop fussing over nothing. Wow, you look so stupid. Like a fucking child."
"Yeah, okay." He lifted up his head directing his attention to 'his dealer.' He reluctantly stared into his eyes.
"Hello. So yeah. I'm Clyde Sykes. Nice to meet you all." He looked around and at everyone's faces, stopping at one in particular. He tilted his head and looked at Matt funnily. Then anger spread over his face as he moved on.
"He fucking remembers me. Shit!"
"Haha, so you're fucked. Who cares." Chase said.
"Well, good thing we're going on that date tonight. I get one from you before you die." Kirra said jokingly.
"Thanks guys." Matt tried to hide the best he could for the rest of the class and he left when the bell rang. Rushing out to the cafeteria to hide in the lunchroom. But when he saw Clyde walk in he rushed out. He then sat outside, soon to be joined.
"What's wrong Matt?" Fi asked.
"Yeah, you look like shit man." Maxxie said taking a seat on the other side of him.
"What's wrong with him?" Kale asked sitting down too with Oliver by his side.
"My fucking, or the one Chase said to go to, dealer is our new teacher. He's going to torture me and kill me."
"What? Say that again, I have no clue what you just said." Fi said.
"New teacher. Clyde. He is---uh---my dealer. Then, he wants me dead."
"Oh. That's nice. Well, I need to get to class. We all do actually. Have fun in your free period." Fi got up and started to leave.
"What? Don't go. I need, help." Matt said worriedly.
"It's fine Matt. You're good." As they watched him start to hyperventilate.
"Yeah, we'll get back to you." Kale said.
"Yeah, back to you. Soon." Maxxie added.
"Yeah dude. You're fine. Bye." Oliver said as they walked in, past Kirra.
Kirra's phone buzzed and she got it out of her pocket. Matt took out his phone to call his mom. She opened it up and saw a new message. She looked at it and it claimed, "EAT." She looked around at all the people, until she saw Matt, putting his phone back in his pocket. She thought for a few moments and left the school, on her way back home.
The hours passed by and the time eventually came for her to go meet Matt. She left her home and walked her way down the streets. She made her way to the restaurant and sat on the bench in front.
"Did you ever realize how horrible that kid is? He makes you wait, he forgets about his dates, he doesn't even fucking chase after you. It's amazing how bad he is." Chase said sitting next to Kirra.
"I'd take that then waking up seeing him blow one of my best friends." Kirra said becoming mad.
"Hey, that's not a valid statement. He was bored, I was bored and are we bored now? No. I did it for fun."
"Fun? That's not fun. Fun is something you enjoy and others enjoy. Not something you get joy out of doing because you make others feel like complete asses. You have a messed up logic if you think so."
"Well, no ones bored. I call that fun." Matt walked up at that moment and interrupted the conversation.
"Matt! You came!" Kirra said childishly.
"Yeah. Don't want you killing yourself anytime soon."
"Wait, wha--Never mind. Let's go." Kirra said as she walked in. They were waited soon after and took their seats.
"Fun huh. Us three. Friends. Sitting together." Kirra said.
"Yes, very…" Matt said.
"Oh, don't let me interrupt you two. I'm not going to bother you. Pretend I'm not even here."
"Okay, cool. Wow, Matt. I like your clothes. Are the actually clean for once?"
"Well, yeah. I assumed this was a pretty special occasion so why not."
"Wow, Matt. So, I was expelled from the clinic today."
"Oh yeah? How'd you pull that off?"
"What do you mean? I'm fine now."
"Fine? You hardly eat, and everything else is just shit. Who you trying to fool."
"Matt, you hardly know anything about me, do you know that? Do you even know why I've been in any of these places you hear about?"
"No, but that's not important. I suppose, when you like somebody it doesn't really matter what's wrong with them." Chase smirked.
"I like you Matt. So, I'm going to tell you why. So, institution number one: Mind Institution. When I was born, I had trouble breathing. No air for so long caused problems. It screwed it all up. But, here I am today, going strong." Kirra smiled.
"You seem find to me. So, I don't think it really did do anything."
"Yeah sure Matt. Anyways, institution number two: Suicide. You already know."
"Well now. Wow."
"Yes. Wow. Institution number three: Eating Disorders. From previous problems the doctors say, caused this. But, it shows them what they know. I'm out of there. Weight is normal everything is perfect."
"How'd you do that." Matt asked.
"Weights in my clothes."
"No, I mean fool everyone about eating."
"Not right now Matt. Some other time."
"You know you can talk Chase? Right?"
"Oh I know. It's much more fun watching her drive the conversation, you making a joke of yourself, and hearing about your guys boring lives."
"Chase, why did you even come."
"Nothing to do. Bored. Why else?"
"Wow, interesting. Cock of the year, big bad ass Chase is bored. No girls to penetrate now?"
"Yes, Kirra. Everyone hates me. Sure." Just then Matt's phone began to ring. He took it out and saw the name across it. He answered it and began talking.
"Matt? Is that you?"
"Yeah, what's up?"
"Where are you?"
"Uh, I'm out with Kirra and Chase."
"You need to go. Leave now. You need to bring them down to the hospital. Now."
"Where? The hospital?"
"Yes Matt quick!"
"Why? What's happened?" Matt listened in. "What? What happened to him?"
"Your fucking dealer has shot him. It's not looking good."
"Where? What part of the body?"
"Actually three shots. One in the stomach and two in chest. They don't know about where though." Taylor's voice still in a panic.
"Oh fuck. Okay, I'm leaving now. The hospital. Bye."
"Bye Matt." Matt filled them in on what was happening, and he left. Kirra decided to stay behind. She didn't care whether that certain someone might live or die. She only cared about Matt. He once again left her. It just wasn't meant to be….
Monday, August 17, 2009
“Taylor! And Fi… Can you give me some time alone?”
“I don’t think so Chase.” Fi shook her head.
“Fine. Listen Taylor.” Taylor cut him off.
“No you fucker. You listen to me. You know you don’t love me, and we’re done. Chase, I don’t trust you anymore.” Taylor said as her eyes watered up. “You know, when I’m with you, I get this indescribable feeling. You obviously don’t.” He approached her and forcefully kissed her on the lips. “Nothing.” She said as she walked off up to her door.
“Chase just fuck off. She doesn’t want to hear your voice. Leave it alone for a while.” Fi entered the home with Taylor and left Chase outside. Taylor knew she had lied. She couldn’t let go of him, but it wasn’t her fault, only his.
“What am I going to do Fi.”
“I can’t help you. You have to resist. He doesn’t love you.”
“Are you saying just let go?”
“What do you think?”
Oliver sat next to Kale and Fi in class. Taylor sat next to Maxxie and Matt. Kirra wasn’t present and Chase sat isolated in the corner. Angie entered the classroom and one by one the class presented their newest reports. When she called on Chase everyone sensed something horrible coming.
“I’m Sorry.” He read. “When you’re in a relationship, several factors play key roles. Loves, being the main one, followed by what you say, the words. Now, not everyone feels love. Some feel it in many different ways. Some find it hard to express. Elaboration is key, because those that don’t love can’t say the truth. Then the words. Some phrases work such as “I love you.” Then, some never work such as I’m sorry.” Taylor looked at Angie and Angie shook her head. Taylor got up and left the room just like the previous presentation from Chase. Fi left too.
“Continue Chase.” Angie told him strictly. Taylor sunk to her knees against the wall in the deserted hall. Fi got next to her and put her arms around her.
“How hard is it to say I love you?” Taylor asked.
“Think about when he says it. Elaboration?”
“When does he ever say it.”
“If he would just sincerely say in his voice, I love you. I’ll take it. He won’t. I’m sorry doesn’t cut it.”
“So much fucking drama lately…”
“I know I know. Isolate yourself. Don’t go to school. Leave the city if need be. If he loves you, he’ll say it to you. Just leave, now.”
“Yeah.” Taylor got up, Fi walked her home and Taylor went inside…
Fi walked herself home and skipped the rest of the day. She went into her room and thought to herself. ‘Maxxie and Oliver… That’s it, almost…” She opened up her piano and practiced her piece. She practiced and practiced until her fingers collapsed under her. She then sat on her bed. She opened up her phone and called Kale.
“Hey, what’s everyone doing today?” She said.
“Uh, we were just going to 24.”
“Alright, I’ll meet you there.”
“Sure…” Fi met them at the club and messed around with them all. Eventually she went and took a table, getting a drink. Oliver joined her, granting her wishes.
“Did you invite her?”
“She’s not going anywhere for a while.”
“Oliver I need to tell you something.”
“Don’t let go.” Fi stood up and left the club. She returned home to find Lizzy in the studio with her dad. They both were flirting with each other as Fi stared solemnly into the window. She angrily went to her room, soon drifting to sleep.
Taylor showed up at Fi’s door. She knocked on it loudly and Fi answered it. “What do you want?”
“I want to go with you to your competition thing.”
“Is that okay?”
“Yeah it’s perfect.” Taylor helped Fi with her makeup and everything else. Then they scurried off to the concert hall where it was to be held. Taylor took her seat and Fi stood backstage. Fi’s teacher stood there with her and comforted her.
“You’re up next.” The backstage manager told Fi. Fi waited for the current competitor to leave the stage until she got as close to the stage as possible. She heard the announcer and once he finished she went on stage. She put her music on the stand and the orchestra started playing. She hit the first key and immediately she was lost into music land.
Chase called Matt and reached the machine. He pondered about leaving a message or not for a good while and finally started talking.
“Matt, I’m sorry.” That’s all he said. The words he was good at saying, and the words that always led to failure…
Sunday, August 16, 2009
“Oh nothing, just wanted to say hi.”
“No you didn’t. You want to talk about Chase don’t you?”
“No? I was wondering if you wanted to go shopping for that dress for your piano thing this week.”
“Alright fine, meet you at the mall?”
“Sure.” Taylor met Fi, and they shopped around until a familiar name called Taylor on the phone.
“Taylor! You answered…”
“I didn’t have to you know that right?”
“Of course I do. I just really wanted to say something.”
“Get to it then.”
“Can you just, please, stop this with Chase. It was all my fault, I—I made him do it.”
“Well fuck off then.” Taylor hung up the phone on him and turned to Fi.
“What he say then?” Fi asked.
“That he made Chase do it. What a bunch of shit, Chase doesn’t take orders from anyone.”
“He could be right though. Maybe he offered it? You don’t know, but at least he’s trying.”
“What do you expect me to do fi? Pretend everything’s perfect?”
“No, because it’s not. Think about it Taylor. Would Maxxie, the one we’ve known almost our whole lives do something like this?”
“Forgive him. He loves you and you know that. You’re like a sister to him.”
“When he admits the real truth to me… Maybe.”
“And what if that was the truth?”
“Don’t do this to me Fi…”
“Fine, let’s go, we still need to find something.” The time passed by and eventually they found the perfect dress for Fi. They made there way back to Fi’s home and stayed there for the night.
Fi opened her eyes and saw that Taylor was not in sight. She walked down the stairs to the kitchen and saw her family eating. “Where’s Taylor?”
“She said she had to go meet up with Kirra. Something about her leaving the institution.”
“Oh, okay.” Fi sat down in a chair, and a plate was put in front of her. Moments later, a woman came in and sat down in another chair at the table. Fi’s dad kissed her and he gave her a plate. Fi and her brothers glared at her as she ate.
“Hey, I don’t think you’ve introduced us Ronny.” She said to Fi’s dad.
“Yes, well, this is Fi, that’s Miles and that’s Andrew. Guys this is Lizzy.”
“Nice to meet you guys.” She said enthusiastically.
“I can’t do this.” Fi said as she slammed her chair back and stopped off upstairs.
“Is something wrong?” Lizzy asked.
“Yes!” Miles yelled.
“You’re sitting in my motha’s chair! That’s hers! Only hers!”
“Oh, I’m so sorry.” She said as she stood up.
“No. This is anyone’s chair now, your mom’s been gone for years.”
“Well, I’m not sitting and watching this.” The two boys said in sync as the left the room.
Fi ran into her room with tears streaming down her face and flying off. She slammed the door behind her and went to her piano. She opened it up and started playing through her tears. Her dad came in soon after, disgusted at her behavior.
“That is unacceptable.”
“Unacceptable? Unacceptable is you! You won’t tell us anything! Who is she! Why is she here!”
“That woman is an inspiring artist who I just signed a record deal to and she’s here to record! Not that that is any of your business young lady!”
“Not my business? She sitting in my mom’s fucking chair and living in our house and it’s none of my business! None of MY business is who you fuck at night, that right there, that is ALL of my business.”
“As long as she is in my house, it is none of your business! And as long as she is in my house, she can do whatever she wants!”
“Ditto.” Fi walked out of the room and out of the front door…
Taylor walked up to the institution and found Kirra waiting. Kirra saw her and stood up. She rushed over to Taylor and gave her a huge hug. “Finally!” Kirra said.
“Hi Kirra.” Taylor said through a laugh.
“Thanks for picking me up Tay.”
“Of course! So, where to?”
“Well all you have to do is drop me off at the school and I’m good.”
“What? You don’t want to do anything?”
“Nope, I just want to go to school.”
“Alright then…” Taylor followed her directions and dropped her off.
Kirra walked around the school until she found Matt. She stared at him from afar, waiting for him to notice. After a while he looked up and saw her there. “Kirra?” He mumbled. He turned to Chase and told him to look, but the next time he did she was gone..
“I know she was there, I just know it.”
“Sure Matt… Any ways, I have to watch my sister later you’re coming.”
“Why do I have to go?”
“Because I said so.”
Fi walked up to the school and went inside, the first person she noticed was the one she was looking for, Maxxie.
“Hello Max.” Fi said.
“You really got to stop fucking around. Tell her the truth.”
“I rather her and Chase happy than her and me happy.”
“Listen Maxxie. I know her. I know Taylor better than anyone. She will be back with Chase sooner or later, don’t ruin yourself over it.”
“Yeah, and has this ever happened?”
“Has Taylor ever seen her boyfriend with his mouth on her friends cock?”
“Don’t argue the point, just tell her the truth Max.”
“Alright, I’ll try…”
“Thank you Max.” She gave him a tight hug and went off to her music class. She entered the room and saw her teacher waiting.
“Hello Fiona. Thank you for joining me…”
“Sorry, I had some issues at home. I won’t be late anymore.”
“What’s done is done, get over it. Any who, have you chosen a piece yet?”
“Yeah, I think I’m going to do the sonata.”
“Yeah that one.”
“Good choice. If you can pull it off you’ll win. Get it out then.” She motioned as Fi removed it from her bag. She sat down and set it on the stand and started to play it.
“Yes! Yes!” Her teacher said. “Fuck! Holy shit! Damn! Fuck my donkey that’s good!” Fi rolled her eyes as she played it. At the end of it, her teacher critiqued the only errors, and they went on with the lesson. Near the end the dean came inside and watched Fi play. Once she finished he walked over to the two.
“I don’t believe I know this young lady.”
“This is Fiona, Fiona Delphs. She’s going to be in the Young Musician’s of the Year competition.”
“Is she now?”
“Yes, and she’s going to win.”
“Well, we will see. I came in here though, to tell you something. Lately there has been a problem with the swearing.” Fi smirked at that.
“Well then, I’ll have a talk with all of my classes then, I’m sorry.”
“Well, it’s just… Never mind. Thank you.” He left and Fi finished her class.
Maxxie walked up to Taylor’s house and knocked on the door. She answered and immediately slammed the door shut.
“Taylor! Please…” Max said.
“Fuck off Max.”
“I’m not leaving until you talk to me.”
“Well have fun then.” Maxxie sat on the front porch and watched the sun go down. He was determined to tell her and he wasn’t going to leave.
“Fine Max.” Taylor said as she sat down inside by the front door.
“Here’s the truth. He said he was in Russia, he wanted to try something new. He pressured me into it. Then that night…” He continues on and a tear streamed down Taylor’s face. “I’m sorry…”
“Thanks Max.” Taylor said through tears.
“Alright, well I’ll see you around.” Maxxie got up and walked off on home.
Fi’s dad was having another party tonight, celebrating Lizzy’s new contract. Fi sat at her in home bar with Taylor and Olivia.
“So why did Chase drop you off here Livi?” She shrugged.
“She doesn’t talk Taylor.”
“She hasn’t talked in a while.”
“Why would we know? She doesn’t talk.”
“Fine then. I know what you did Fi.”
“He just needed a little bit of a push. I didn’t orchestrate anything.”
“It’s fine Fi, don’t worry.”
“Has Chase tried calling you lately?”
“Only a billion times.”
Chase walked to his destination with Matt at his side. He got to a bench and sat down. “A bench?” Matt asked.
“Just a break.”
“Fine then.” They sat there for a few minutes. Chase got out his phone and went to his contacts. He tried calling Taylor, but no response. Next he called Livi, no response. He tried Fi, and he did get a response.
“Is Taylor there?”
“She doesn’t want to speak to you right now.”
“She doesn’t have to. I just want to talk to her.”
“No Chase.” She hung up the phone on him and put it back in her pocket.
“Kirra!” Matt said when he saw her leaning against a wall.
“No it’s not, she’s still in the loony bin.”
“She was right there!”
“Stop fucking around Matt, I need you to help, not fuck off. I already got her out of a relationship with Connor, now I just need her back.”
“What? What the fuck did you pull this time Chase.”
“Put porno pics of Reagan on his phone and sent them out to everyone.”
“Why did you do that? That’s sick!”
“You just need to learn to play the game Matt.”
“That’s wrong Chase!” Matt said.
“Are you bunching your fists at me Matt? If you want to hit me Matt, go right ahead.” Chase said as he got up and opened his hands up. Matt got up and backhanded him across the cheek.
“What the fuck? I said hit me not bitch slap me. That’s fucking hilarious! I can’t believe you actually slapped me!” Matt clenched his fists again and went in for a punch. Chase leaned over and countered back, knocking Matt to the ground.
“You better not be crying Matt.” Chase said as Matt got up.
“I’m not crying because you hit me…”
“Right. You’re crying for all the kids in Africa right?”
“You know I used to sorta look up to you?”
“Of course I do Matt. It’s more obvious than your love for Taylor.”
“Well you know what? You used to do things in hopes of being somebody, but now… This new Chase, you do things because you can!”
“Matt, everyone wants to be me. I sleep with girls, whereas you persuade them to commit suicide.”
“Now I can’t imagine anything worse than being you! You’re a selfish little prick. You haven’t got any friends. Not even your oldest friend likes you anymore!”
“You know something Matt? Every time a word comes out of your mouth little flecks of spit travel with the sound.” Matt stared at him for a long while and turned around and started to walk off.
“Come on Matt. Don’t be a little girl.” Matt flipped him off as he walked off down the streets. He walked on and on until he saw Kirra again.
“Kirra?” He hollered. She ran off down an alley as Matt ran over to where she was. He looked down the alley, but she was gone. He continued down the streets and entered Shocker’s Diner. He sat at the counter and ordered some food. He got out his phone and tried calling Kirra.
“Hey Kirra, I’m at Shocker’s care to join me?” He said in his message before hanging up. He looked up at his reflection in mirror-like ceiling and saw someone sitting next to him. He swiftly turned his head and saw Kirra sitting there.
“Hi Kirra? Why have you been following me around all night?”
“No I haven’t. You’re following me. You know you got a black eye growing?” Matt picked up the napkin container and looked at his eye in the metal casings reflection.
“Ah shit. Chase punched me.”
“Really? Wow! That’s wonderful!”
“Yes, separation anxiety. He’s afraid he’s losing you. We did a clinic on it at the center.”
“Kirra, do you mind if I uh, maybe uh, kiss you?”
“Really? Wow, I didn’t think you wanted to.” Matt leaned in and she turned her head. Their lips touched and they started to kiss. Kirra seemed to lead when Matt pulled away.
“Sorry, I’m usually better than that.”
“Okay, kiss me again.” He leaned in and this time he did a lot better, but he was interrupted by a phone call. He took it out and looked at it and saw the name imprinted on the screen.
“It’s Taylor, I need to take this.” He answered it and said,” Taylor?”
“Matt? Are you with Chase?”
“No, I just left him why?”
“Oh nothing. Can you come down to Fi’s house and bring everyone?”
“Thanks Matt, bye.” He put his phone away and stared at Kirra.
“I gotta go Kirra, you want to come?”
“Kiss me again.” Matt demanded.
“No Matt, I won’t.”
Matt followed Taylor’s directions and showed up at Fi’s home. One by one everyone left, leaving only three, Fi, Matt, and Taylor.
“Where’s Chase?” Fi asked Matt.
“Just wondering. So what did you do with Kirra?”
“Huh? How did you… Not much.”
“That’s not what I heard. You’ve fucked it up Matt. She’s given you another chance, and you’ve shot yourself in the foot. Call her right now and do the one thing she wants.”
“You know, you’re right, but you can’t control my life Fi.”
“Control your life? I’m giving you a suggestion. If you don’t want her then go ahead, don’t.”
“Give me the fucking phone.” Fi handed him her phone and he found the number and called.
“Hello? Who’s this.” Kirra said, confused by the voice.
“Matt, listen, you don’t have to talk. I’ve realized something. I really like you, even love you and I don’t want to fuck it up. Will you go somewhere with me?”
“Wow Matt. You sound like an old love movie.”
“Yeah, well that’s how I talk.”
“No, no. It’s good. So does this mean we’re going to go on a date?”
“If you want to call it that… I guess.”
“Wow, that’s fantastic! I’d love to. I just need to check my schedule, I’ll call you back uh, later.”
“Great… Bye.” Matt hung it up and threw it at Fi. “You happy now?”
“Wow Matt, that was kind of pathetic.” Taylor threw in.
“She fell for it though. I’d say it was kind of well played.” Fi said.
“Kirra would fall for anything, that doesn’t mean much.”
“Hey, at least I fucking bothered to talk to her unlike you and Chase.” Matt directed at Taylor.
Friday, August 14, 2009
“Do you have to do that?” Taylor asked.
“Eat like that!”
“I’m only eating for Christ’s sake.”
“He’s only eating.” Her mom said as she walked in. He put down the plate of food and kissed her mom.
“Can I have some cash for today?”
“Yeah sure.” Her mom said as she got some out and gave it to him. “Don’t even say it Taylor, he’s my husband.” Tyler left the room and the door was slammed moments later.
“What are you planning on doing for the rest of today?” She asked.
“I don’t know. I thought I’d maybe go sell myself on the corner.”
“Okay, as long as you stay safe, have fun.”
“I broke up with Chase.”
“Oh! How come?”
“He went down on a boy in my history class while I was watching.”
“Oh, well just say you’re sorry, I don’t know. I have to get to work give me a goodbye kiss?” Taylor kissed her on the cheek and her mom left.
Taylor left too, soon after with a plan of her own. She walked down to Matt’s house and knocked on the door. Matt answered and looked astonished that she was there.
“It’s time Matt.”
“Time for what?”
“You’ll see.” Taylor took his hand and went upstairs into his room, closing the door.
“Have anything to drink?” She asked.
“Yeah there’s some wine in the cabinet right there.” Taylor found it and opened it up, taking a sip.
“So…” The both said one after another.
“Are you going to do anything?” Taylor asked.
“Uh, no?” She was silsnet for a few minutes, before she decided to make a move.
“Oh my god.” She got up and sat on his lap. She kissed him furiously, almost unreal. She took off his hat and shirt and he took off hers. She got down and unbuttoned his pants. Matt’s face changed from awkward to flabbergasted within seconds.
“I can honestly say that that has never happened before.” She got up and looked into his eyes.
“Feel my tits.” She said.
“Feel my tits.” Matt grabbed them and she moved her back around.
“Taylor…No.” Matt said, releasing his grip. “I’ve dreamt of this day three times a night and four times on birthdays for the past eight years.”
“Wow, really? Was I good?”
“Oh, very, but that’s not the point. This doesn’t feel right.”
“Well, you don’t really mean this, and you and I are both missing someone right now, so I think we should stop.” Taylor stared at him and broke into tears. He put his arms around her and she rested her head on his shoulder. The door slammed open, revealing Matt’s dad.
“Hey Matt do you have any… WOAH! Sorry!” His dad said embarrassed and feeling sorry for his son.
“Don’t worry dad, Taylor is just a bit upset.” His dad crept out of the room and went on the staircase. He took out his phone and dialed Matt’s mom.
“Julia?… He’s not gay!” His dad said ecstatic.
Taylor and Matt stood before the institute that Kirra was in. They opened up the door, and asked the lady where Kirra would be. They followed her instructions and went outside. What they saw was interesting: A sanctuary that looked like a happier Disneyland. Everyone was dressed up in bright colors, and they all looked like they were having fun.
“What the fuck is this?” Matt wondered.
“Well, they’re trying to stay happy. How better could you handle it?”
“I guess. Where’s Kirra?” Matt said looking around.
“I don’t know. Keep looking.” They looked around and found her, she was sitting on a bench next to another guy. She had a blanket over her legs and a straw hat on. They went up to her and Kirra didn’t notice.
“Hi Kirra.” Taylor said.
“Taylor! Wow, Matt too.”
“Well, I’ll just leave you two alone.” Taylor said as she left them.
“Hi Kirra.” Matt said, frustrated because Taylor left.
“Why are you here?”
“Well I came to, uh. I really don’t know.”
“Do you want to stroke my pussy?” Kirra asked, leaving Matt confused. She grasped her blanket and pulled it down to reveal a cat.
“You thought I meant? Wow, Matty you are still the same. Meet Stanley.” She said pointing to the guy next to her. “We go on dates, such a happy couple. But he knows no sexual relationships, because I don’t do that anymore.
“But I’m still hoping…” Stanley said.
“Don’t, because your hopes fail. Any ways, how nice to see you. Is there anything you’d like to say?”
“Well, I just wanted to know when you were leaving this place.”
Taylor walked up to the food table setup for visitors and picked up a cupcake the size of your knuckle. She ate it, and that’s when she notice a women sitting in a wheel chair right next to her.
“Hello.” Taylor said.
“Hi deary. Would you like to hear a story?”
“No, I’m fine, thank you though.” Taylor smirked.
“Well then… They always serve me a rack of lamb with turkey at night, but I always say I only want a lobster tale because that’s what I ate every night in the palace with the prince.” Taylor laughed.
“More fairytales granny?” A man said as he walked up.
“No, I’m just telling her how you always server me lobster, but I want lamb and turkey.” Taylor laughed again because she had flipped it around. The man looked up and saw Taylor.
“Connor? What are you doing here?” Taylor asked.
“My mom owns the place. How about you?”
“I’m here to see a friend.”
“When do you get off?”
“Soon, what did you have in mind?”
“You want to go to the wharf when you get off?” Taylor said.
“Sure, see you there at four?”
“Sweet.” Connor pushed the women around and started moving her.
“Good job with that one. She has tremendous thighs.” The women said as she was pushed out.
“So tell me a secret Connor.” Taylor said as she took a sip of her drink. They were sitting outside on a patio in front of the bay.
“A secret huh? Okay.” Connor pulled out a bottle of pills and gave them to her. “I take these every hour. Doctor Stocks secret recipe. Keeps me happy, keeps everyone else happy.” Taylor handed them back.
“You’re very straightforward Connor.” Taylor said.
“Of course, what other way is there to be?”
“Well my ex…No. Say Connor what do you think about getting out of here. Maybe a few drinks, I don’t know.”
“I say, what took you so long to offer?” He got up and took her hand as they left the restaurant.” Chase lowered his newspaper and watched them leave.
“You know what, let’s skip the drinks. How about my house?”
“Let’s go.” Connor said as Taylor led the way.
Taylor sat under the covers half nude as Connor took one of his pills. “You really have to take those?” Taylor asked.
“You wouldn’t like me so much without them.”
“I think you should try without them for once.”
“I’m telling you, you would hate it.” Just then Taylor heard the door open. “Shit!” She said. “We’re supposed to be alone for another hour!” Taylor put her clothes on quickly and walked down stairs. She saw Tyler with a suitcase and boxes in his hands. A feeling of relief settled down her spine as she smiled.
“Running away?” Taylor asked.
“You wouldn’t understand.”
“I understand perfectly. The only reason I would assume my mom is with you is because you have a huge cock. Otherwise she wouldn’t bother with a prick like you. So, how about you wait and tell her yourself.”
“I can’t.” Tyler said. “Here, something to remember me by?” He handed her a vase with dogs all over it.
“Thanks.” Taylor dropped it and it shattered all over the floor. “Goodbye Tyler.” He left the house and Taylor returned upstairs.
Chase sat on a bench in the park where Reagan normally was. Within a hour she showed up and sat by Chase.
“Hi Chase, I heard about what happened. I think you’re better off though. Less baggage.”
“We just weren’t on the same level intellectually. Not like you and me Reagan.”
“Of course not, she was just like yeah.”
“I got a project today.”
“Photography, Study of the Human Form.”
“Would you like some help?”
“Oh yes I very much would.”
“When can we start?”
“How about now.” Chase said.
“My house.” He took her hand and ran off to his house with her.
Chase uploaded the photos to his computer and plugged his phone in. He downloaded the pictures to his phone and set off to find Taylor and Connor.
Taylor and Connor walked down the market streets. Connor had spoiled her with gifts and flowers the whole day. They happily walked around, Connor had his arm around Taylor. They reached the street and Connor stood waiting for cab. A man came around soon and “accidentally” bumped into Connor. “Sorry man. Sorry.”
“Don’t worry about it, it’s cool.” The man walked down to a table where Chase sat. He handed him a cell phone, and Chase gave him money.
“Thanks.” Chase said.
“No, thanks from me.”
Connor walked Taylor to a cab and kissed her on the cheek. “If you ever want to talk, all you have to do is whistle.” Taylor said jokingly.
“Oh come on. You don’t know how to whistle? You put your lips together and bl…” She was cut off by Connor’s kiss on her lips. He pushed her down onto the seat and closed the door. He tapped the top of the cab as it drove off. He walked off, happy because his day was perfect.
Chase held the two phones in his hands. He opened up all the photos from earlier and sent them to the other phone. He opened up the contacts on the phone and found the send to all button. He pressed it and the photos were sent to everyone on the phone.
Taylor felt the vibration of the phone and opened it up. ‘New Message from Connor!’ it said. She smiled and opened it up. She saw the picture start to materialize and grinned even wider. It opened all the way up and the smile turned to a deep frown. She started to cry some more, for this was the limit of the relationship, already.
“Yeah? Is that you Taylor?”
“Yes…” She said through tears.
“Are you okay? What’s wrong?”
“Connor? Who’s that? Meet me at the Kanker’s bar thing at uh 8:00.” Taylor reached her home. She heard crying from her mom’s room, so she went inside.
“Why is it that I can always find a man, but once we get to know each other they always leave. I can’t help it that I’m just being myself.” Taylor sat down next to her and hugged her.
“They obviously don’t love you then…”
“I guess…. Is it my big tits? My big bum?”
“You’re bum’s not that big.”
“But my tits are?” They both laughed for a while and stayed silent.
“Mom, I gotta go, I’ll see you later okay?”
“Yeah, bye.” Taylor left the house and walked off to the bar. She reached it within minutes and went inside. She saw Fi sitting in the lounge area alone on the couch. She sat down next to her and opened up the photos, giving the phone to Fi.
“Wow, I didn’t even know you could get your legs into that position!” Fi said.
“Well, you can. The worst part is he warned me. His whole family is screwy and he said he was too…”
“I’m so sorry Taylor. Well,that is pretty screwy. Taking beaver shots of your own sister.” She handed the phone back to taylor. “Delete them. Has he tried to ring you?”
“About a thousand times.”
“Don’t worry. Drink?”
“Yeah, sure.” Taylor walked up to the bar and ordered a round. She looked next to her and their sat Tyler.
“Tyler? How you doin?”
“Wan’t so clever as it goes.” Taylor huffed.
“Why is that Tyler? Maybe if you weren’t such an ass you’d be fine.”
“I just miss the big mouth, bum, tits, the great sex.”
“Watch your mouth, this is my mom. It’s only been one day you know.”
“I know. It’s just that I get jumpy, I want more even though I have enough. I’m a fuck. Does she miss me?”
“No.” Taylor lied. She felt guilt consume her and she decided to stop being so bitchy. “Yes, she fucking misses you. But you let her down Tyler, and that can’t happen again. So you decide stay, or go? Don’t you fucking dare go back on it either.”
“No.” Tyler got up. “Let’s go.” Taylor walked back with him and they eventually reached the house.
“I’m staying out here.” She looked at him and saw how shitty he looked. “Jesus Christ, spruce up man.” Taylor helped him out to make him look nicer and he looked at her for a while.
“You’re the right type of girl you know?”
“Yeah…” Taylor said agreeing. He went inside and she watched him off.
“Hello herp.” Taylor heard from the background. “Heard about pervy boy. He really needs to know how to use a phone. Send to all, you really gotta be careful with that.”
“Yeah, you’re probably right.”
“So…” Chase said.
“Can we stop this now?”
“Get back to normal?”
“Stuff happens Chase. You get over it.”
“Yeah, but, yeah, but…” Taylor rolled her eyes.
“Woah, Taylor. You got nasty.”
“Yeah.” Taylor shook her head. “Listen, what are you doing here…”
“I came because, it turns out, as it goes. I think I might love you.”
“That’s an awfully long sentence Chase…”
“Well yeah, but.” Taylor huffed and let out a short laugh. “Well, yeah.” Chase fixed himself. Taylor turned around and started to walk off. “Taylor!” Chase called for her. She turned around with a ‘fuck off’ look on her face.
“I said it okay? I’m sorry… I’m sorry.”
“Beg.” Taylor shrugged.
“Sorry?” Chase said confused.
“You heard me Chase.”
“Okay, uh---uhm. Look, please can we get back. I won’t do any of it again. The cheating and lying.” Taylor cut him off.
“Undermining, sneering, taunting, manipulating!”
“Okay. All those things. I promise… So?” Taylor smirked a bit. Got a little closer to Chase and put her hand to his cheek. She looked deeply into his eyes and was about to fall in, but she came to her senses and a sad face returned. She removed her hand and shook her head.
“So I’ll see you around…” Taylor turned her back and walked to the house. It practically broke her heart to do this to him, but she had to. Chase, now shocked and a bit confused stared at her as she left. For the first time, he had been torn…
Thursday, August 13, 2009
Taylor got up from her seat and marched over in a rage to where the group was.
“Hey Tay!” Chase said happily. Taylor’s face tensed up and she kicked Chase right in the crotch. He fell to the ground and his hands cupped the area.
“Times up you prick! I’ve been waiting for you to tell me, but I’m done!”
“What’s wrong herp?” Chase asked as he got up unsteadily. She tensed up even more and punched him right in the face. Taylor walked off, down the field to go and sulk. She crossed her arms and tears started to stream down her face. Fi was close behind, ready to help…
“Taylor! What’s wrong? Did he screw someone again?”
“I tried to tell you. I really did.”
“Remember I was going to tell you, but you said no Chase issues.”
“Who! For Christ’s sakes…”
“Uh, big tit’s Mary, buck teeth from the camping trip, slutty Michelle, easy Jessica and posh girl from quire.”
“Reagan? Reagan Stock?”
“He promised he hadn’t…” Taylor paused for moments and continued, getting serious. ” Did you fuck him?”
“You heard me. Did you fuck him.”
“Taylor, come on you know I…” Taylor cut her off.
“I bet you wanted to fuck him. Didn’t you?”
“You know what Taylor, fuck off.”
“What?” Taylor said as Fi walked off. “Fi! Come on Fi!” But Fi was already walking off. Taylor walked over to a big tree and sat down under its shade by the trunk. Tears streamed down her face as she sat there. Maxxie approached her because he knew what she knew.
“Just fuck off Max.”
“Well, uh, just uh, please don’t tell anyone.”
“What? That you’re a dirty little slut who fucks around with other people’s boyfriends?”
“It wasn’t my fault, I didn’t mean for it to happen.”
“Well, there is no need to worry because I am going to tell everyone.”
“Just go…” Taylor said calmly. Max stared at her for a moment then left.
“What did you do to her now?!” Fi asked Chase.
“I don’t know, but she’ll be back. No worries.”
“No worries? Look at her! She’s a fucking mess!” Fi yelled at him, by this time only Chase and Fi were standing there.
“She’s a mess because she doesn’t understand.”
“Understand what?! Why you fuck everyone you can put your hands on? That’s understandable, your Chase for fuck’s sake. That’s obviously not why!”
“Then I guess I don’t know why Fi.”
“Well it looks like Maxxie does, so why don’t I just go talk to him.”
“Go ahead, be my guest.”
Angie walked into the supplies room to pick up some stuff for the new week when her phone rang. She picked it up and heard the voice of Kale. He started talking as she listened. He face changed from angry to pleasured to sad.
“You’re never seeing that again let alone lick it!” Angie hung up the phone when she saw Taylor in the corner with a bottle of alcohol in her hands.
“God Taylor.” Angie said as she went and sat down next to her.
“Drink?” Taylor offered her.
“No, I’m fine thanks. What’s wrong?”
“I think I’m going to be sick!” Taylor said. Angie picked up a box behind her and put it underneath Taylor’s chin, but it was too late. She threw up right onto Angie’s clothes.
“I feel better.” Taylor sighed.
“Good, that makes one of us.” She said as Taylor threw up again on herself this time. Angie walked Taylor to the showers, and they both cleaned up. They put on new clothes and walked off to the classroom.
“Now, does this have anything to do with Chase?”
“Yes…” Taylor said as she started to cry.
“Well, would you like to elaborate?”
“I love him so much…” Taylor said over her tears.” and I made him go away.”
“Well, have you talked to him?”
“No, but he’s called at least forty times.” Taylor said just as the phone began to ring. She picked it up and without waiting she said,” Fuck off you ass fucker! I never want to see your tiny cock again! Fuck off! Just fuck the hell off! Leave me alone! Leave me alone!” She hung the phone up and tears streamed down her face again.
“Not quite what I had in mind, but I guess that works…”
“Angie! Angie!” Kale said from outside of the classroom.
“Oh god…” Angie huffed. Kale walked in and saw the two sitting there.
“Oh fuck!” He said, taking it the wrong way.
“Kale, just leave for me please.” Angie said.
“Okay Angie, but I’ll see you later.” He winked at her and left the room.
“Do you mind telling me who this is exactly about?” Angie asked Taylor.
“Me, Chase, Maxxie, every girl and boy Chase has fucked.”
“Maxxie?” Angie said as the bell rang for everyone to go home. “Well, how do you plan on getting home?”
“I’m supposed to walk.”
“No, no, I won’t have that. I’ll give you a ride.” They got up and went out of the classroom to find Kale leaning against the wall.
“What do you want?”
“I need a ride.”
Angie pulled off of the freeway to go to Taylor’s house. No one had said a word the whole time. She pulled in front of her house and Taylor got out.
“Thanks for everything Angie.”
“Sure. That’s what teachers are for.” Angie watched Taylor go inside, then pulled away.
“I don’t see why you couldn’t take the bus.”
“Left all my money at home.”
“Of course you did. I hope you know, what happened never will again.”
“Uh huh. I know you want me”
“I don’t want you.”
“Makes perfect sense.”
“It makes no sense. Kale did you forget I’m your teacher and these things aren’t supposed to happen?” Angie pulled into the parking lot for Kale’s house. She stared at Kale and he looked back at her. She pushed at him and kissed him furiously.
Chase stood in front of Taylor’s house. He knew she was in her room, so he kept throwing rocks at her window lightly. “Taylor!” He would yell sporadically.
“Why don’t you just leave her alone for a bit.” Matt said as he approached Chase.
“I just want to talk.”
“What did you do now? She’s really upset.”
“So? I just fucked around with Maxxie a bit, no big deal.”
“No big deal?”
“We were in Russia, I wanted to try something new.”
“No matter who you hurt along the way? As long as you can control both guys and girls, you don’t care what you do? No matter who you hurt?”
“Of course Matt. Everyone wants to be me. I am the one to model after, and you know it.” Matt looked at him. His face tensed up and he punched him in the opposite side Taylor did.
“You are pathetic Chase…” Matt walked off down the street to go to his house just a block down. Chase got up off the ground and stared at him.
“See Matt? Now you’re getting it! Now you’re getting it!”
Fi walked up to Maxxie’s house. She knocked on the door and his dad answered.
“May I help you?”
“Yeah, can I talk to Maxxie? It’s his friend Fi.”
“Oh yes, Fi! Please come in, he’s in his room.” Fi walked inside and went into Maxxie’s room. She looked at him and he looked back at her, they both were silent. Fi closed the door so no one would hear their talk.
“What did Chase do now. I know you know.”
“He’s weird now.”
“What do you mean.”
“I’ve known him for what, ten years, and he hasn’t care about me very much.”
“So, on the Russia trip when Oliver and I had another fight, when I moved in with Chase, he changed. He said he’d give me head, and he kissed me.”
“I know… Then later on when Oliver officially ended it, and I was drunk…”
“So he waited until you were vulnerable then he bit at his chance. I’ve lost all the respect I had left for him now.”
“He thought Taylor was to hammered to see, so he did it, but apparently Taylor saw.”
“Did you let him?”
“Well I came to my senses in a few seconds and stopped him, but the fact is he did. How long do you think this will go on for.”
“Well Max, you may have been vulnerable, but you let it go on, you should’ve stopped it. It’s partly your fault.”
“I know, and I feel so guilty for it. What should I do?”
Taylor walked into the psychology classroom, because the bell rang. She took her seat and everyone else poured in. Fi sat down next to her, but everyone else stayed away. Kale sat down next to Maxxie, and he had marks all over his neck.
“Jesus Christ, one psychology teacher can do that?” Maxxie asked.
“Yes, she can.” Oliver sat down next to Chase and Matt stayed away from them all.
“Jeez, Taylor hurts.” Oliver asked.
“That one wasn’t Taylor, this was.” Chase said pointing at the one on the other side of his face. Angie walked in she had a scarf around her neck to cover up what Kale had done. She walked to her desk and said,” Alright, who’s next to share their report?”
“Me.” Chase said. “The Role of Sex and Power Relationships.” He read.
“I asked you to write that?” Angie said, shocked.
“Uh, okay well go on with it.”
“Power is the single most important force in the universe. Looks and cash mean nothing, but the power they give us means lots. The second most important is sex. So, sex plus power equals fun.” Taylor knew what he meant by this, and she was done. She got up and left the classroom without a word.
“Whatever you did, that Taylor is too upset to talk about. I hope you’re ashamed of yourself.” Angie glared at Chase. Maxxie looked at Fi and she shook her head. He gulped and looked down at the table.
“It’s my entire fault. I got off with Chase on the Russia trip…” He said as he stood up. Giggles were heard as he continued,” I only did it because I was drunk and I fell out with Oliver when he said he hated gays. So, I got upset, then Chase said he’d give me head…” Chase shook his head, shocked that this was happening. “ To cheer me up, you know. It didn’t mean anything, but I lost my head, then I let him give me head, then we got deported from Russia. I’m really, really sorry for being a slut… Okay?” Maxxie sat down, Chase was dying of embarrassment and all the girls were giggling. Kale arched his eyebrows and nodded his head. He clapped for Maxxie’s courage, but everyone else stayed silent.
“Right, well… Anyone else want to get something off their chests?” Kale stood up.
“I’m in love with…” But Angie cut him off.
“Sit down!” She screamed.
Taylor walked down the pathway of the schoolyard. She had held back her tears barely, and was just walking glumly. She looked ahead and saw Reagan and her friends with a boy. She walked over to them and said,” Hi Reagan.”
“Taylor? How, uh nice to see you.”
“Isn’t it? Can I ask you something?”
“Okay, I was just wondering how many times you fucked my boyfriend.”
“Reagan you didn’t!” Her friends said.
“How very, very rude of you.”
“Don’t worry! He fucks everyone, including boys. So you’ve got that in common.”
“You absolute bitch!” Reagan said as she pushed onward to get into a fight with Taylor.
“Hey, hey. Easy Reagan.” The boy said as he held her.
“Don’t go there with her mate. You don’t know what she’s picked up.” Taylor told the boy.
“Lemme get her! I want to kill her that fucking bitch cow!”
“Perhaps you could go?” The boy said. “I’m Connor by the way. Reagan’s brother.”
“Cool.” Taylor said as she turned around. “Well, bye girls. Bye Reagan.” She skipped and sang as she walked off. Reagan yelled obscenities while Connor kept holding her. Taylor walked off to the end of the grass and sat on a bench. She went through her phone, deleting all traces of Chase on it. Moments later the bell rang and Chase showed up in front of her.
“How long you going to keep this up for?” Chase asked.
“You know, I never realized how fucking annoying it is to know you.”
“It’s fun though.” Chase added.
“You think?” Taylor said with a ‘oh really’ look on her face. “Any ways what do you want?” Taylor said, but before she let him answer she continued,” You know what, tell me you love me.”
“You know I love you herp.”
“No! Tell me like you’d die for me. Like nothing else matters, like your world stops for me. Like you mean it, you little shit.”
“You know, come on.”
“Wrong answer Chase. Fuck off I’m busy…” She thought about her encounter with Chase for a while, but came to the consensus what she said was right. She got up from the bench and walked off to go home.
